With architecture by OMA and Jacobs, a new DPI headquarters in ‘The 78’ will soon become home to a vibrant new innovation district along the Chicago River. The project will occupy a one-acre site southwest of the Loop, and will introduce over 200,000 square feet of workspaces, classrooms, labs, and event space for the Discovery Partners Institute (DPI) and its partners. The project marks a focus on expanding Illinois’ innovation economy by the state’s governor J.B. Pritzker and the DPI at University of Illinois.
